Before Edunation, the application process for Finnish universities used to be much more complicated and time-consuming. Thus, Edunation decided to come up with a much easier system. In a nutshell, all the applicant has to do is follow these 3 simple steps:
- Fill the online application form
- Take a simple online exam
- Apply for a visa
The whole application process will be very fast and flexible. After the applicants receive their acceptance letters and visas, they will start their studies at a Finnish university, which offers one of the best educations in the world.
To be eligible to apply through Edunation, you will need to show proof of your previous education (e.g. high school diploma, bachelor degree etc.), proof of your English language proficiency by means of a standardized test (e.g. TOELF, IELTS etc.) and your nationality. A language test will not be required if English was the language of instruction in your secondary level education institution (high school) or your bachelor’s degree has been done fully in English. If this is the case, you need to have proof of it in written form, signed by the prior institution.
Furthermore, all applicants are required to have an average or above average GPA (grade point average) according to the grading system used in the applicants home institution.
In addition to the documents mentioned above, all applicants are required to write a Motivational Letter (one page, A4 format).
The full extent of the required documents also depends on the university and/or the degree you’re applying for. Thus, please check each university page individually to get more specific information about the required documents.
After choosing the university and the degree that you want to apply for, you will need to fill out an online application form, where you need to submit the following information:
- Chosen university and degree program
- Personal data and contact information
- Eligibility information (prior education, GPA etc.)
Additionally, you will need to attach the following documents to the online application form:
- Copy of passport
- Certified copy of prior education transcript
- Proof of English language proficiency
- Motivation Letter
- Any additional required enclosures that the university requested
If you fulfill the minimal requirements, you will receive an invitation to the online exam. The exam will be fairly simple, however, it will be held in English, so please prepare accordingly.
Soon thereafter, you will get an acceptance letter to the university you applied for, if the exam was satisfactory. Only then can you start your visa application process. Read more about your visa here.
You will also be notified by email if you don’t get accepted.
